Almost Spring

The weather here today is absolutely beautiful. There is not a cloud in the sky and it's a cool 70 degrees. Needless to say, I have had a hard time dragging myself indoors for any amount of time today. After a long walk in the park downtown and watching Kona (my adorable doggie) run wild and make many new friends, I came home and decided to clean out the dead brush in my flower beds. To my surprise, I found that my day lilies are sprouting!!! I can't believe it. I guess Spring in closer than we think. Look! Green is start to peek out everywhere. I can't wait to see everything begin to bloom.

The first two photos were taken in my back yard. These are Stella Doras that were planted before we moved in to the house. I probably need to break these up and move some of them to a different spot in the garden. As you can tell, there are a ton of them. Day lillies definitely like to multiply. One reason why I love them so much.

This photo was taken in my front flower bed. I planted these last year. They are a different variety of the ones in the back. The Stella Doras are bright yellow. These are fuschia and white. So pretty and I can not wait to see how these turn out for year number two!
